FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Cyclists were seen struck in the streets of Fort Lauderdale after they were accused by drivers of throwing bricks at their cars.

Fort Lauderdale Police detectives are looking into the rowdy behavior. The incident happened along A1A near Oakland Park Boulevard.

“There is a lot going on here, and it’s a priority for us to get to the bottom of exactly what happened, and that’s why we need the public’s help,” said Fort Lauderdale Police detective Ali Adamson.

According to detectives, they received tons of calls Saturday from people complaining about fights, people throwing bricks at cars and a car hitting a bicyclist. It’s unclear if all of that is connected.

“Riding in the roadway, disrupting traffic, walking bridges and surrounding vehicles, as well as vandalizing them,” said Adamson.

In newly released video, bicyclists could be seen swarming a black Chevy sedan. The door swung open and, at some point, someone got on top of the car and started to jump.

One witness shared another video to 7News showing what appeared to be bricks on the road, a man walking with blood on his chest, a group of bicyclists at an intersection and a car swerving, hitting a bicyclist.

“You see the video of the car driving in the bike lane and what appears to be purposely hitting bicyclists,” said Adamson.

When detectives arrived over the weekend, they did not find any evidence or any vandalism victims.

“We were unable to locate any victims, and we were unable to really determine exactly what happened out there. We did not locate the car. We did not locate victims, but we are aware that something happened,” said Adamson.

One witness told 7News off camera something happened in the area that turned into a fight and then the bricks started flying. Detectives said there were about 100 to 300 people riding on the road.

“We’re really trying to determine what exactly happened on this day. We need the public’s help in being able to do that,” said Adamson.

7News spoke to the man in the pink shirt that was on the video who apparently was hit by a car. He said that he was not part of the group that people were complaining about.

“We do ask that if somebody witnesses something or has video of an incident that where crime is committed that your first call be to us, the police department,” said Adamson.

Detectives are investigating the incident. They want to talk to the driver and any witnesses who saw something.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is urged to call authorities.
